Just like Erick Anderssen, Four Farthings is one of my favorite Chicago taverns. Stepping through the doors feels like walking a bit back in time (well, other than the flat screen TVs and a few other accouterments of the 21st century). Carved wood, real bar stools, tables by big windows overlooking the street. Terrific staff, great food and, in good weather, some of the nicest outdoor dining around. And it’s a Big10 bar!
Check it out. Tell ‘em Erick sent you.
